Frank Rosolino managed to squeeze in trips abroad for specific tours. In the Summer of 1978 he did what was to be his last solo tour in Europe. He came to Copenhagen late in August to play at Slukefter in the Tivoli Gardens which is where the present CD was recorded. He was backed by Thomas Clausen Trio and with no restrictions on length of performances the quartet was allowed to expand the chosen pieces.
Blue Daniel was Frank’s best known composition. It has the unusual chorus length of 14 bars. Waltz For Diane is played in waltz time. There is plenty of fast slide work here. How About You? Is nicely relaxed and serves as a prelude to a marathon blues performance using Thelonious Monk’s Straight No Chaser as the theme. There Is No Greater Love uses short, punching phrases during the solo to add impetus.
